Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–5—These books define between 26 and 32 commonly used idioms and provide examples of the phrases in context. The meaning of each idiom is given, but not its history or origin. The layouts are clear, the illustrations are colorful, and the writing is crisp. Zany imagery suggested by phrases like "walking on eggshells" and "a frog in my throat" are depicted in large, cartoon drawings reminiscent of Shoebox greeting cards. Each saying appears in large colored font with its meaning printed below it in a smaller, matching colored type. Children will relate to the situations provided in the examples. Tables of contents list the idioms alphabetically; no index is provided. This lighthearted and witty approach to the English language will appeal to general readers.—June Shimonishi, Torrance Public Library, CA
